The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Ilford. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
Have purchased a a terraced house in Ilford , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Ilford conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Ilford registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
Am I best advised to use a Ilford conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am buying? We have a good friend who can carry out the legal work but his firm is located 200miles away.
The benefit of a local Ilford conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Ilford know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were content that must trump using an unfamiliar Ilford conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.
My work colleague mentioned that before choosing a conveyancing lawyer they need approved by your mortgage company. It happens to be my first home move but I have an offer in principle from Halifax and I already have a local conveyancing solicitor in Ilford in place. Does Nat West Bank insist on an approved lawyer to be selected? If so, where can I find that list for my conveyancing in Ilford?
You need to instruct a solicitor that is on the Nat West Bank panel. Just telephone your preferred Ilford conveyancing lawyer to check if they are on the Nat West Bank panel. If they are not approved you have numerous choices available to you here:
- Complete the purchase with your existing Ilford conveyancer but Nat West Bank will undoubtedly instruct a property lawyer on their approved list. The net result is additional charges and probable delay.
- Appoint a fresh conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check that they are on the Nat West Bank conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to do everything possible to get listed on the Nat West Bank conveyancing panel.
